Abstract: This paper investigates how bank prudential behaviour affects bank stability, focusing only in the period after the global financial crisis. For this reason, we construct a new composite proxy as a measure for bank stability condition and another one for bank prudential behaviour. Then, we make use of a sample with a set of data for 16 banks operating in the Albanian financial sector over the period 2008–2015. The main results provide strong supportive evidence that there exist a strong positive relationship in the prudential – stability nexus, which confirms that prudential behaviour is a key fundamental contributor for bank stability. We also used a quadratic term of the prudential indicator to capture a possible non-linear relationship between bank prudential behaviour and stability, but found no supportive evidence. Finally, macroeconomic conditions are also found to be crucial for bank stability. Similarly, improving operational efficiency and capital structure boost bank stability.
